RIP Bill. You are a good guy and we will miss you.

For those of you who didn't know Rick, he is and always will be a part of the midwest safety crew for CCS events. He was one of the people who made the CCS family complete. We will miss him dearly.

He was a great guy, who always made me feel welcome as part of the safety crew. He's one of the main guys who kept people safe out there. He was someone who really counted. I'm sorry that he's gone.

I got trained in cornerworking with the CCS Crewthe year before last and Bill was a good man. I attended three or four of the events this last year working for him so I didn't know him as well as some of you. He was easy to work for and gave me my first cornerworker whistle trophy.

Been dere done dat dis dere and de udder ting. OH and whatnot
